Supercharged 1% Vitamin A Serum
Take your evening skincare to the next level with Retinol 10TR Intense. A lightweight vitamin A night serum that refines skin tone and texture to help visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. As the most effective anti-ageing ingredient, vitamin A also balances uneven skin tone and helps to decongest pores for a clearer complexion. Crafted with Time Release Technology, the innovative serum allows retinol to be “drip-fed” into the skin throughout the night, preventing unwanted irritation. Retinol 10TR Intense has been supercharged with climbazole, a compound proven to boost the results and anti-ageing benefits of vitamin A without increasing the irritation.* The formula is also infused with squalane, a deeply hydrating ingredient specially selected to ensure skin is left instantly plumped and smoothed. That’s why we consider all our retinol products: “intelligent retinol”. Read more about what makes them so intelligent here.
Formulated with our highest strength retinol (1%) and supported by vitamin E for enhanced stability, this fast-absorbing serum is perfect for those who have already been using Retinol 6TR in their regime and are looking for a higher strength, or who want to boost the results of Retinol 10TR.

HOW IT WORKSRetinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This increase in retinoic acid visibly plumps and refines the skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Vitamin A can also help promote cell turnover to diminish the appearance of fine lines, winkles and uneven skin tone. Retinol 10TR Intense is boosted with climbazole; an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. Retinoids are often notorious for being drying and irritating to skin, however Medik8’s Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula evenly and slowly throughout the night. This reduces any potential for irritation or redness. The intense serum also uses a high percentage of squalane; an exceptional moisturiser carefully selected to help counteract any dryness caused by retinol.
